What is considered to be low mileage ? With anything showing on the odometer, and a blown engine,

I would call 'more than high mileage' and yer in for a termite hill full of trouble. If it is in drivable

condition, anything under 200k mi I would call 'low mileage.' But that is how I think about older, out

of production vehicles. Naturally interior and exterior considerations come in to play as 'next item' to

evaluate how the vehicle was treated. Third to consider: are there any puddles under it ? (Ha)

All in all, and if you are into engine changes, the 134k mi hanger queen may or may not be a plum...you

would definitely be taking a neck stretching chance. Let's just say rule #1: "it's all in the motor !"
